Where’s Evander?

It’s a question on the tip of a few tongues around Winnipeg this week. All but four members of the Jets have returned to Winnipeg to skate informally with their teammates, but Evander Kane isn’t one of them.

Considering he’s only a three-hour flight away in Vancouver, some are wondering why he still wasn’t on the ice in Winnipeg on Thursday, although it’s believed he will be there on Friday. Captain Andrew Ladd used Twitter earlier this week to poke some fun at his teammate, asking where he was.

“We’re still trying to get ready for the year and obviously would love to have all the guys here, but they either have maybe stuff either going on at home that they gotta figure out or whatever,” Ladd said Thursday. “Honestly, it was just a joke and intended to have a little fun.”
